Integrity News
Love Music Magazine Awards

 

Some of you will be familiar with the great work done by Emma and the team behind Love Music Magazine and others not so.

LoveMusic

Covering artists and bands across all musical genres, the only proviso is that the music must be new and exciting.  The mag is brilliantly put together, monthly and FREE (though donations are welcome via their website), so what’s not to like?

Having launched in July 2013, Love Music celebrated its first anniversary with its own Love Music Awards shortlist, covering loads of bases from Best Pop Artist through Best Management Company to Best Recording Studio.

Surprisingly tucked away in the Best Independent Record Label 2014 category was our own little Integrity Records and, as was announced by the mag last night, we’re proud to say we won the top gong!

So, a massive thank you to over 4,000 of you who voted, and another to Emma and Love Music Magazine for their tireless work promoting new artists.

Finally a word for a fellow winner and great friend of the label, Gavin Monaghan.  Not only did Gav win Best Producer but his studio, Magic Garden, was awarded a gong too.  Gav and Magic Garden will always have a special place in our hearts for producing early Integrity albums by Plutonik and Miss Black America and, more recently, for his brilliant work with theLights.

Now head off to Love Music Issue 15 to read about all the other winners – some big names like Gary Numan and Scuzz TV are in there, and some great new artists to discover too.

Following Fake DIY Record of the Week ‘Gold Tag’ and Louder Than War single of the year contender ‘Prufrock’s Dream’, ‘Sacrifice’ is taken from recent debut album ‘Ever Moving Happiness Machines’, which is out now on download and digi-pak CD with 16-page colour booklet.

Stream the single edit of ‘Sacrifice’ right now on SoundCloud or Amazing Tunes.

With the band’s electro influences to the fore, ‘Sacrifice’ is about becoming who you truly want to be, even if it means hurting people along the way.

“One of 2014’s finest albums … a cracker … 9/10”    Louder Than War

Following their April tour and summer festival appearances at Joy Fest (Camden) and Villa Park football stadium (Birmingham), Silhouettes play live again at:

 11th October – London – Oxjam Clapham

19th October – Birmingham – Sunflower Lounge

25th October – Manchester – Roadhouse

Futur Primitif in the UK

 

Daniel Lefkowitz returns to the UK this week for two solo shows under his Futur Primitif moniker.  He plays End of the Road Festival on Sunday 31st August and Exeter‘s Cavern Club on Wednesday 3rd September.

Daniel’s ‘official’ slot at EOTR is opening the Garden Stage on the Sunday afternoon but, if last year is anything to go by, he’ll be popping up all over the weekend!

For those unable to see him at the now SOLD OUT Larmer Tree Gardens festival, Daniel will be supporting the super-talented Ezra Furman at Exeter’s iconic Cavern Club on Wednesday 3rd September.  Tickets are available at: WeGotTickets

To celebrate Futur Primitif’s return to the UK, we have a limted number of signed copies of his current album, Machineteeth, on CD in the limited edition, hand-printed sleeve with full lyric sheet available at no extra cost via the Integrity Mailorder page now.

Miniature Dinosaurs – debut album

Miniature Dinosaurs’ album “In The Spirit Of Everything” is out now via all the usual download stores and streaming sites.

MiniDinos_album_cover

We released the single “Lemonade” and the “Turn It On” EP by this fantastic Scottish 4-piece back in 2012, with great reviews from the likes of Artrocker and Indie London and radio support from Q, Amazing Radio and tons of regional stations across the UK and beyond.

After a couple of great UK tours and with support from Creative Scotland, the guys returned to fabled Beetroot Studios in Airdrie with producer Stuart MacLeod to record their debut album.

The official track-listing is:

Library
Zambia
French Kissing
All of the Lights
Lip Sync
Alligator
In The Spirit of Everything
Show Me Love
F.L.Y.
Lemonade
I’ll Save You (For Anyone Else)
Next of Kin

Sadly, the guys have decided to disband, so the Mini Dinos will once again be extinct, but they were keen for their first and final album to see the light of day so self-released it on 18th August 2014.

We’ve been lucky enough to have had the album for the last few months and it’s a cracker, so treat yourself and grab yourself a copy now.
